    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Merck (West Point, PA) in January 2010.

    Interview

    Was told that I was over qualified because of my Masters degree. Wasted so much time at site. I was interviewed a couple of times prior to this one for other positions at different sites. All of them resulted in the same outcome. I was over qualified from the beginning. I would not recommend anyone with more than a Bachelor's and 1year experience to apply for this position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Merck (West Point, PA) in April 2008.

    Interview

    The initial interview was by phone. After being approved an on site interview was set up. The interviewers were a series of 3 area managers or directors. Each of the three interviews took approximately one hour. The Interviewee is ranked using a point system that is tallied at the end of the interview. After receiving an acceptance letter, a medical evaluation and drug screening is performed. The entire process usually takes 2 months, but It was 29 days from first contact until first day of employment. There was a shortage at the time
